Food Friday: How are you feeding your skin?

Right after my mom had back surgery she needed pain medications. Her stomach is really sensitive so they decided to give her a "pain patch". When I was with her and I learned you could put a patch on your skin and it would go into you blood stream and minimize your pain, it hit me

What I put on my skin goes immediately into my blood stream!

I then started to pay attention to what I was pouring onto my skin. Did you know your skin is your largest organ, and obviously what you put on it goes into the rest of your body. I want you to go look at the products you use on your skin, do your recognize all the ingredients? Odd question - 

Can you eat your skin cream?

I know some of you might be thinking, "She's taking this health thing a bit too far" but hang with me. It is so easy and affordable to make some of your own  hygiene products.
